Integrated CAD System for Bridges Based on BrIM
The concept of BrIM (Bridge Information Modeling) is proposed and the technical features of BrIM are briefly described. A bridge CAD system based on BrIM concept is developed under the graphic platform of AutoCAD using ObjectARX. Data interface between 3D solid geometric database and each stage of bridge lifecycle is introduced. The essence of BrIM is realized that all informations including geometric data and non-geometric data are stored in the only knowledge database and all informations of bridges in different stages, such as design, construction and service, are obtained in the only database.
